Busted this disc out yesterday and really forgot how good it was, I mean in some places Kristen Massey sounds eerily as close to Stevie Knicks then I have ever heard anyone get, in passing it fucks with me, but I wish they would get back together and hire someone to write some better songs for them, even though there were some strong songs on their debut, this one for example, I fucking really love this song..

they have a grip of covers they released as singles under Red Siren, so I guess I just call them that, plus my CD has RED embeded above the Siren, doesnt your? BTW Kristen has another band with 2 of her sister who are all smoking hot btw called Tami Show.

No.  Mine was exactly like this one on Amazon, which also shows the band name as just "Siren" on the CD itself:

Interesting. Different cover for Europe and US.  For some reasons their were called Red Siren in Europe and Siren in US.

European CD cover:

I received a response in my correspondence with a sexy member of the band, nope not the guitarist, but this was included in the message she sent,  "It was a complete shit show, the 1st run of albums had already arrived in stores when we received a cease and desist letter from the lawyers of another band who claimed they were Siren before we were and if the album went out with their name on it they were going to start pounding us with lawsuits, so our lawyer discovered it wasn't an international issue, only in a particular country, or continent to be accurate, so we re-added the Red, it was the original name to begin with

The continent being Europe.

Is this the band from England who send the cease and desist letter?

Hhhmm, now I am wondering which version I have? Pretty sure it was Siren, but equally I am 5% wrong most of the times, so?

This one took a minute to seep in as at the time of acquiring it was a little lackluster for me, but i has improved with my age. 

 

Would like to revisit it (and many others), sigh. Some day.

I dont know bro, she said they offered them like $50,000 for the name, that band said no, then they broke up a short time later, I guess there are a bunch of bands with that name, then some went a step further with Syren, LOL, she said thats probably more then Siren made in their entire career of their band,

    • The Jokers - Slapback from their upcoming release “Rock and Roll Bones” 
    • There are certainly some great songs on here. I've only done the first 2 discs so far though. 
    • Played as well today and it's ok and has a few good songs, but tbh, I'm starting to get a bit bored with them, as they don't offer up anything they haven't done before. Like the last album, everything on this album has been done to death previously and is as predictable as hell. Of all the new albums I have played recently (and there have been quite a few) this doesn't feature very highly unfortunately.
    • I think 'Smoking' is the weakest track by far on here and the only one I don't really rate that much. Of the others, 'Time to Let Go' is a cool rocker that hits the spot and the lead off single 'Why Are You Calling Me Now' is a great AOR track. Liking the rest is going to depend on whether you like the more New Country/Pop ballad style of song, as there are at least 4 or 5 like that,  with Jay DeMarcus's obvious influence on these ..'I Hope You Find It' 'Don't Go' 'Finally Got It Right' and 'Anything But Us' are spectacular ballads and amongst some of the best I have heard in recent times, whilst 'Angels' 'All Night To Get There', 'Lights Go Out In Paradise' and 'Waiting On Your Sunshine' are all top quality too. Definitely one of the best albums this year for me, but as I said, it won't all be for everyone's taste, especially the softer stuff on show.
    • At least they've reverted back to something similar to Tesla soundwise...its ok...not bad...but if I need Tesla I've always got Mechanical Resonance , TGRC or Psychotic Supper to get me through  
    • New single pretty blah to me.  It's ok I guess but no desire to add that to a playlist or re-listen. These guys feel like a band that's underachieved a bit to me with their new music in the past 20 years or so after starting off so well with their first 3-4 albums.  Yeah, there's been some good songs here and there but they just really haven't gotten near the quality of those early albums.
    • Lily Lowe - Scream      After listening to her debut album “Löwe“, it’s evident why LILY LOWE is being coined Norway’s new lady of rock. This young singer and songwriter – real name Lill Sofie Eriksson Wilsberg – has the voice, the looks and essentially, talent, to become a star. The mastermind behind “Löwe” is Norway’s rock institution Trond Holter (Wig Wam, Dream Police, Jorn Lande etc.) who not only co-wrote the songs, but also is the musical director & producer, and play all over the record. In fact, most of Wig Wam members play on the album, alongside other Scandinavian renowned musicians. But don’t lose the focus here: LILY LOWE is the star on the album: with her intense delivery of brazen vocals is sure to reign right alongside the most prominent rock artists to date. An she writes very good songs as well. LILY LOWE was a contestant for Norway’s Eurovision this year with the great glammy hard rock tune ‘Bad Baby’ (included into the album) but if you think her music is bland you better listen to “Löwe” carefully. Having a song titled ‘Handsome Whore’ in the track list give you an idea this album isn’t ‘Eurovision saccharine’ at all. This rocks, hard. Holter has provided a bright, crisp, rocking production for Lowe’s voice and he drops some killer riffs to boot, like on opener ‘Scream’ which while wrapped by a modern production it’s very classic rock. The kind of riff that worked in the Seventies, the Eighties, and today. ‘Bad Baby’ is the hit, catchy, infectious, with Lily showcasing why she grew up listening Guns N’ Roses and Motley crue. The glam metal ‘Daddy’s Type’ is probably the song that most reveals Holter’s involvement, because this could easily could be into any Wig Wam album. It’s almost like you get a little shocked when it’s not Åge Sten Nilsen who sings. On “Run” Lily & Holter try something different, more modern and adding some electronics to the mix, but don’t be fooled, this album rocks. “Löwe” is a catchy driving good debut album by this talented young woman, helped by a cast of top Scandinavian musicians. LILY LOWE is an artist we will certainly hear more about in years to come.   01 – Scream 02 – Crying Game 03 – Bad Baby 04 – 911 05 – Caught in a Dream 06 – Daddy’s Type 07 – Handsome Whore 08 – So Long 09 – Run Lill Sofie Eriksson Wilsberg – vocals, drums Trond Holter – guitars, keyboards, backing vocals Bernt Jansen – bass, backing vocals Magnus Galguften – drums Tom Jensen – keyboards
